This was so cute! Took me a minute to figure it out but once i did i had a blast. Great job!


Haha, chaos rules 🤘
I am glad you enjoyed it – Jan and me had a blast making it too.


Thanks so much for the kind words! :) And yes it is a bit confusing in the beginning, seems cursed! :D


hi i love the cursed energy of this sm and would totally love playing this w a friend, but it cant be opened on Mac unfortunately; I followed the install instructions but get this: "Cursed Leash quit unexpectedly"


Hi Angela, which version of MacOS are you using?


Mac Catalina!


Hi Angela,

I feel now like a real game developer: Releasing something and immediately after publishing it's not working when somebody wants to actually play the game 😂
Anyways, please check out

Note: I now updated to Catalina (was surprised to see I was still on Mojave) and and also exported as a debug build since some people have had similar issues otherwise. I hope this fixes the issue, because I've never worked with Godot before and it's my first game in like 12 years ... so I have no other ideas on how to fix the issue 😅


Haha indeed, game jammer struggles  ><

Now I get this error: 

So a different error message - progress? a quick google search says it might be your godot version


Thanks for the debugging help :) Much appreciated!
Just to confirm: Does the same error message also appear if you start the game with Right click > Open 


Indeed it does!


Hi Angela,

Thanks for your patience and interest.

If you have 【System Preferences】>【Security & Privacy】>【Allow apps downloaded from:】set to  "App Store and identified developers" and open the app by Right Click > Open (after unzipping) ... it should work 🤞😬

(Apparently Apple got stricter and stricter and requires code signing – which I am not capable of yet –  for the smoothest experience but the above should work)


hi i tried it and it failed silently this time  - heres a screen recording of what happens -


Hi Angela, thanks for helping out!

Unfortunately I couldn't find the issue and don't have time these days to investigate further :(

But thanks for the help and the shared excitement about the game :)


Hi Angela, I really love your games, thanks so much for checking ours out! :) Hope we can get it running for you. If you happen to have Godot, maybe it runs via using the code from ?


aw thanks! :) and i dont sorry!  but if you have a workable build past the deadline i can play it and give feedback but wont rate


FYI while we used a lot of pre-existing art (especially thanks to all models by Quaternius and the background picture by Lance Asper), we remixed and edited a lot of them to create sort of a mixed media style. :)
